Background Information and Statement of Purpose

As the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) mobile projects move forward we have an enhanced need for QA across a wide range of mobile platforms and devices. Mobile is the primary form of access to Wikipedia in many parts of the world. Be part of the Wikipedia mission to spread free knowledge across the globe!

Scope of Work

  • Provide QA testing and automation support for all Wikimedia Mobile projects including but not limited to:
    • All Mobile Web projects
    • Android, iOS, and other platform apps
    • Automated testing (for example, scripting on Perfecto Mobile)
  • Make mobile testing part of Wikimedia’s core QA practices, and support continuous integration across mobile development

You need to be an experienced software tester and familiar with QA automation practices. Experience with mobile testing is a must.
